Born on a factory site in an Iranian desert backwater, the forty-year-old supervisor is destined to share the fate of the doomed brick structure itself. Acting as go-between for the workers and the boss to settle their disputes, he is hardly prone to any act of kindness, not even from the woman whom he strives to safeguard. In chiaroscuro grace and artful long takes, the late Kiarostami’s protégé Bahrami crafts a bleak, haunting drama of a world hellbent on destroying itself. Orizzonti Award for Best Film, Venice.
